COLORADO SPRINGS — For the next few days, Garden of the Gods Road, one of Colorado Springs’s busiest roads will remain closed as crews work on repairing a water main break, putting business in a tough situation. Garden of the Gods Road is one of the main roads people use to get to one of Colorado’s biggest attractions.
“Our crews are being taken away from their families because of this,” said Ted Skroback, Spokesperson with Colorado Springs Utilities.
The main that’s damaged is 24 inches wide and more than 50 years old. An investigation is underway to determine the cease of the break, but springs utilities say a connection failure is the root of the problem.
“While we are working on this line we had to shut off water on this particular area,” Skrockback said.
Empty tables and empty parking lots surround the water main break site as businesses operate using alternate water sources.
